Kate LaDew, Black and White
Living in the Driftless, the leading edge of the last great glacier to cover North America, has provided photographer JJ D'Onofrio with a dynamic and unique canvas upon which to study his subjects and their relationship to the land. Some of his work is thought out, attempting to set a scene, a mood. Some of his pieces are simply life as he discovers it. JJ has been involved in the Madison, Wisconsin, art community for many years as both an artist, showing his own work, and an art dealer, selling art from some of the finest artists in the Midwest.
